I have been lurking for a couple of months now on this forum. Now that I have found something cool to ask about I hope you all can help with some information.

I just unearthed from an old jewelry box a men's 18K Moviga Chronotech. I hope I can figure out how to send in some of the pix I took of it (URL's frighten me!).

The back of the watch reads: 18K A87932 0723G
Inside: Moviga Marvin Hime & Co. Adj to Temp 17 jewels Swiss (& some numbers I cannot make out on the right side of the movement).
I don't believe the watch band is original because it's a buttery feeling mesh and is stamped: Tiffany & Co. C+B 18K

This is what I know about the watch: my heel/gigolo dead father in law lived in Southern California from the late 60's until his death in 1995. Apparently Marvin Hime was some "jeweler to the stars" in Beverly Hills. That's all I know. Funny, the dead father in law couldn't be bothered to pay child support for 30 years BUT could buy a nice gold watch! Go figure.

I will work diligently to post some pix if you like, but I need some help with that. It's a cool watch that you wind and it's works beautifully. Thanks for reading. Mary Violet
